My family stopped at Marisqueria Corcovado while traveling through Puerto Jimenez. I ordered the arroz con mariscos. While eating the rice, I noticed a pungent smell. I investigated further and realized the crab was rotten. I brought it to the waiter's attention and he said "I don't know how that happened." Later, he brought the check and we realized that... More

The mixed ceviche was fresh and delicious, the arroz con pollo traditional and tasty, and the kids, who are a little less adventurous, thoroughly enjoyed their heaping helpings of fish & chicken fingers (even though the restaurant's version of ranch dressing is closer to a caesar). Our waiter, Javier, could not have been friendlier or more attentive. We accidentally ordered... More

We found this restaurant and ended up eating here 2 times in 4 nights. The service was very good and I had the imported (US) steaks both nights and they were awesome. My wife had fresh seafood special both times and she thought it was great. I would highly recommend finding this place.

The shrimp ceviche made a ceviche lover out of my husband and the whole family enjoyed our meals from arroz con pollo to fish filet, to a seafood plate with everything on it!

Marisqueria Corcovado was one of my favorite experiences in Puerto Jimenez. Our taxi driver, Tony recommended this restaurant, and it was a great idea! We had great fresh lobster, decent fries, and terrific ceviche. It was the first time my husband ever ordered ceviche. So, I was hoping that it would be good. It exceeded my expectations. He is now... More

Let's start with the food. The Lobster is delicious and as fresh as it gets! The ceviche is addictive and they have several different options for you. There are a lot of options on the menu and all of them come out fresh. I think the Chef is very proud of his food. (As he should be) As soon is... More

This place sums up Costa Rica for us. Fabulous, friendly service; excellent food and eaten with macaws nearby and crabs and lizards scuttling along the beach. Walter was our waiter and deserves a mention for being a gracious host and putting up with my terrible Spanish pronunciation. Very highly recommended.

My husband and I shared the Mixed Seafood Plate for 1 for lunch and were more than full. It included a full lobster, tons of mixed seafood, huge shrimp, clams etc … for 13000 colones (or just over...

The food here was amazing. I had the Big Shrimp with rice and I will definitely be back tomorrow! Great view of the ocean. Walter is best waiter I have ever encountered! Also has a nice bar.

Pretty impressive local restaurant. Great place for a ceviche, fish, and shrimp. My favorite dish is the whole snapper. I recommend it. Service is local and friendly, and they speak English fairly well. Great place for drinks, some of the coldest in town. In addition to the usual, I recommend two of my favorites: The Margarita Corcovado and Corcovado Marea... More
